A really big thanks for this. Navit seems much more reactive on qtmoko
than on SHR.

But, the topic seems to need some more work for a better integration.
When I start navit, nothing occurs on GPS device part: nor power on,
nor GPSd launch. Did I missed something? Currently I imagine the
following solutions:
- use a script shell wrapper around navit to activate device, start
gpsd and fire navit (and undo all these when navit terminate)
- insert some specific code in navit for qtmoko, like NeronGPS does
(directly power on or off from code via

This topic brings me an other question: what design for GPS related
tools? Raw device (like NeronGPS) or GPSd (like currently
pre-configured navit-qtmoko)?

Note: I'm still using qtMoko v35.
